Focus on Endangered Languages

Many of the world’s smaller language communities exist on the margins. Learn more about endangered languages and get to know the communities that speak them and their efforts through partnerships to enable the preservation of their language and culture.

SIL International has been serving alongside the world’s ethnolinguistic minority communities for over eighty years. SIL offers technical expertise and training to support local communities' decisions about how to maintain their cultures and use their languages in new ways to address their changing needs.
